If your wishlist at Williams Sonoma is ever-expanding (how can anyone resist the new ombre Le Creuset collection?), we may have just found your dream job. For the fall, Williams Sonoma is hiring about 3,500 work-from-home employees between now and mid-November 2018, FlexJobs reports. As the kids head back to school, this short-term, work-from-home opportunity could be the perfect way to earn some extra cash–hey, the expensive holiday season will be here before we know it–while also enjoying the best perk of the job: the 40-percent merchandise discounts. The hard part will be resisting spending all of the extra income on everything in the store.

According to FlexJobs, the hiring process began earlier this summer but will continue into November, so you still have time to throw your resume into the ring. The hiring will reach a "fever pitch" between mid-October and mid-November, when the retailer will hire about 200 work-from-home customer service associates each week. The pay is $12 an hour, and full-time seasonal sales associates typically work five days a week for a total of 40 hours. One weekend day is usually part of the schedule as well. For those who want to work remotely, this position could give you the flexibility you're looking for. 

To qualify for the job, you must live within 1.5 hours of a Williams Sonoma Customer Care Center, and have a computer or laptop with high-speed internet as well as a web camera for live virtual interactions with customers. Currently, the retailer is hiring in many cities across the country, including Phoenix, Dallas, and Columbus, Ohio. As a customer service associate, you'll do everything from help shoppers place orders to answer questions about the new Instant Pot. If lounging on your couch as you help shoppers find the perfect kitchen appliances is your idea of a great day "at the office," you'll want to check if Williams Sonoma is hiring in your area. Send in your resume, then get to work drafting your shopping wishlist.
